About me

  • My research investigates the interaction of neurons, glia, and the
    vasculature in neurodegeneration, focusing on metabolism and inflammation. We
    use microscopy, molecular, and multi-omics tools.
    James received his BSc (Hons) in Medical Pharmacology and PhD in Visual
    Neuroscience and Molecular Biology from Cardiff University, Wales before
    undertaking his initial postdoctoral training in the lab of Prof. James
    Morgan at the School of Optometry and Vision Sciences, Cardiff University
    where his work has focused on early dendrite and synapse refinement during
    glaucoma using human patient and glaucoma animal model tissues. James joined
    the Pete Williams Lab in 2018 to further his postdoctoral education where his
    work focused on the early mechanisms of neurodegeneration in glaucoma,
    focusing on mitochondrial and neuronal metabolism. In Nov 2021 James was
    promoted to Assistant Professor within the Williams Glaucoma Group.
    2016 PhD in Visual Neuroscience and Molecular Biology, Cardiff University, UK
    2011 B.Sc Medical Pharmacology (hons), Cardiff University, UK


  • My research is focused on the interaction of inflammation and metabolism in
    the retinal neuro-vascular unit, and how this contributes to
    neurodegenerative disease. The eye is an ideal model to explore these
    interactions since it has well defined neuronal layers and vascular plexuses.
    Glaucoma, one of the most common sight threatening diseases, cause the death
    of retinal ganglion cells which carry visual information to the brain. My
    research seeks to understand early mechanisms of disruption to the retinal
    ganglion cell neuro-vascular unit including resolving metabolic and
    neuroinflammatory changes. We use high resolution imaging, gene and protein
    assays, and metabolomic and transcriptomics tools. By understanding these
    early mechanisms we can identify novel targets for the development of new
    therapeutics that could help to prevent or slow vision loss.
